Open Saturday & Sunday from 9:30am till 4pm.
The Meadow Mountain Chairlift opens for the Season today! So grab the family and head to Great Divide. For those families waiting for easier terrain to open up, now is the time to come up and get those turns in.
Meadow Mountain gives us access to The Meadow and Boomerang trails for those beginners to have some great easy turns without the crowds on Good Luck. Meadow Mountain also serves the Sunnyside trail, which provides quick laps down to the Rascal Terrain Park without riding the Good Luck Chairlift.
At 7:00 am this morning, the temperature is 20°, with a forecasted high near 27° today. There are a few clouds this morning, and the forecast is showing clear and sunny by the afternoon. So it’s going to be a great day for some Lower Mountain Fun.
In addition to Meadow Mountain, the Good Luck Chairlift will take you to a combined Good Luck to Broadway Trail today that is 3,000 feet long with a bit more than 600 feet of vertical.
The Rascal Terrain Park got reworked this week for our Park Riding friends. We added a few more features giving the park a fresh new feel.
The Backyard beginner rope tow will be operating today for those new skiers to have some fun turns under the lights. In addition, lessons are available for those who need a little instruction to learn a new Lifelong sport. If you are interested in Lessons, give us a call at: (406) 449-3746 or check out all the details and book your lesson online at: https://skigd.theonlysky.com/
Lift tickets today are $20 and available at the Ticket Desk or online at https://skigd.theonlysky.com.

We reopen Wednesday, December 22nd, and are open every day through Monday, January 3rd, except for Christmas day. We will be closed Tuesday, January 4th, and reopen Wednesday, January 5th, starting our Winter Season.

Looking forward to next week’s weather, the forecast shows several storms moving into the region. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the snow continues. After this last storm, the Upper Mountain is looking well covered, and a base is developing. The Upper Mountain is still too thinly covered to open, but these storms get us closer to opening the upper terrain.
Now that we have moved most of our snowmaking off the Broadway trail, uphill travel is OPEN. Our uphill travel policy is in effect; please review it before coming up. Also, please note that this can change; check the uphill policy section of our website for current uphill travel status before coming up each day.
A couple of highlights of the policy include, but are not limited to:
- Please ascend by the designated route only.
- You may ski up only when the lifts are not operating/carrying the public. Once the public boards the lifts for daily or nighttime operations, you must stop ascending and begin skiing down.
- Please be cautious of operating snowcats and snowmaking equipment.
- Do not ski down the center of freshly groomed trails
- Actively avoid Snowcats and Snowmobiles. THEY ARE NOT LOOKING FOR YOU, SO YOU MUST ACTIVELY AVOID THEM! If a snowcat is coming down the road or trail, GET OUT OF THE WAY.
- No dogs (leashed or unleashed)
